the summit is number ten? oh, I thought it was nine… :-) we stayed at the last hut before the summit (I think it’s 8 1/2?) and there they told us, the next point would be the summit… (maybe they just wanted to be nice to us…). Anyway, mountain-sickness or not (and partially really bad weather) it was more than worth the effort, not just because of the view, but especially because of the (south-)korean group, that adopted us, and the people in the hut, who were quite funny and lovable.

Let’s cast some thread necromancy!
Here are the things I wrote about my trip to Japan in 2012. It’s on tumblr so you’d have to dig through several pages of My Little Pony content to find it, thus I’ll link the posts here directly :3

I apologize, it’s not nearly as comprehensive as other blogs here and the photos are all cellphone quality. Next one will hopefully be better!March 31, 2014 at 7:57 pm #44695
Love it. =)
I wouldn’t aspire to my level of bloggishness, personally, considering that each post takes me about two hours to write… =POctober 13, 2016 at 9:19 am #49680

I haven’t got an Instagram account, so I can’t follow, but I’ll certainly keep an eye on it. =)
Doesn’t chocolate on fries just scream “Halloween” for you? =PApril 27, 2018 at 5:49 am #50543
Not in Japan at the moment, but lived there from 2006-10 (Imabari, Shikoku), and again from 2013-15 (Osaka). Have numerous posts on my life in Japan here:
I will upload Osaka stuff and 2016 ride around Kyushu, when time is available… Will be riding around this summer (Tokaido, and Biwa-ko, I think) and planning a Basho extravaganza next year (2019). Anyone cycling in Japan?

Ooo, I’ll certainly check out that blog.
While I haven’t cycled in Japan myself, have you ever watched Cycle Around Japan on NHK World? They’ve even done an episode on Biwa-ko.
I’m tempted to walk the Old Tokaido someday, though any time I attempt any sort of all-day walk, I always quickly realise how far out of my current grasp that kind of major expedition is. =P
(Also, to tootle my own horn a bit, I just got back from a holiday in Japan this morning. Blogged about it in the same place as my first trip – http://japan.jrudd.org/ )
